Thermalright AXP-100 Low-Profile CPU Cooler Review

Thinking Mini-ITX or HTPC for your next build? Thermalright drops off the AXP-100 made exactly for these environments, and it comes with options.

Noise Level Results

As I would expect, with the limited voltage supplied during the stock testing, the noise levels of both the TY-100 and the TY-140 were really good - some of the best results we've seen actually.

When I got to adding full power to these fans, I found that while the CFM increases, and you can tell the fan is spinning faster visually, the noise levels don't come up enough to be much of a bother at all.

 

Considering this is for HTPC environments, I can see why Thermalright chose these fans. For those in a SFF case, likely you are still gaming with a headset on and you can take a bit more fan noise, so the option for better efficiency than what I should is an easy fix for you.
